I had an iLO failure on BL460c Blade last week which required a system board replacement.
After I changed the system board the HP firmware required an update. I used the SPP 2014.02 ISO which I had no problems with using the automatic upgrade options. Broadcom NetXtreme II BCM5708S on the mezzanine cards. I now think that I was extremely lucky.
It could be that a lot of AMD kit was purchased to mine bitcoin before ASICS started shipping.
Performance of the 7970s are quite awesome! Gave up with mining a long time ago but kept 2 for crossfire gaming and dont need to turn the heating on upstairs anymore!
